    Will not load after DROID splash

    I have recieved my Verizon Motorola DROID BIONIC and have already lost the SIM card. It tells me on power to touch the android icon but tells me my only options are "emergency call" or "power off". I have ordered a Verizon/Vodaphone SIM from a place that starts with "E" but I would first like to know if I can get by this roadblock some other way in the meantime.

    The Verizon/Vodafone SIM won't work. That is for people who go abroad. You need an LTE Sim card which you should be able to get for free from a verizon store.

    How did you lose your sim card? Why would you not just install it right away?

    I shorted my sim card and it was replaced for free. No discussion on insurance. Of course I didn't lose it.

    Really, you need the card, otherwise you're SOL for 4G.

    Did you call verizon or go into a store? If you went into a store I would try calling Verizon CS. They tend to be more flexible. Considering, from the sounds of it you haven't had the phone for very long.

    That's odd. I've heard of some vzw's trying to charge for a sim.. but I've never experienced it.

    Rooting won't do anything for not having a sim. No sim, no phone. Simple as that.

    If I were you, and you need the device to operate, go to vzw and get the sim card, have them bill it to your account, then call cs and argue it with them. They would probably remove the charge.

    See, this is the biggest problem..I'm not a verizon customer and NEVER want to be! If I cant flash or root it then I guess my only choice is to buy a worthless piece of plastic. Remeber, I only want it to run not actually make calls with an outrageously exspensive plan, wifi is the new cellular coverage!!! Anyone have a spare 4G LTE SIM card just lying around!!??

    That's probably why they wanted to charge you for the card.

    Back in 2005 I had a Motorola E815. At that time, Verizon didn't support OOP so I couldn't send my phone numbers to the built-in phone book in my car via BT. The workaround was to get a cheap BT phone from T-Mobile, put the numbers in that and send them. I had to pay $20 for a T-Mobile sim card, but it was worth it for me at the time.

    You mean another worthless piece of plastic. How much did the then Verizon/Vodafone SIM cost? If you got it from a place beginning with "e" I see it cost $2, but it was designed for the BlackBerry.

    Where did you get the Bionic from? Were you planning to make calls only through WiFi? If so, other phones may have worked better.

    FWIW, I see a 4G sim card selling a place starting with "e" for $4.75 http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-VERIZON-...04%26rk%3D4%26 Whether it'll work for you or not I dunno.
